Another big championship match involving the county tomorrow and so this definitely calls for a Mayo News football podcast bonus episode. In this one, host Rob Murphy and I help to set the scene for tomorrow’s crunch qualifier tie against Derry while Billy Joe Padden provides his thoughts on how Mayo might line out and what they need to do to […]
Photo: MichaelMaye.com Just two days to go now until our Round 2A qualifier clash with Derry and although it’s eerily quiet at the minute it’ll be anything but at MacHale Park at 5pm on Saturday. We’ve lost our safety net – with the same amount of carelessness that we did twelve months ago, even if the circumstances of this latest […]
Photo: MichaelMaye.com The Mayo News is out today and the paper has some news on how things are shaping up in relation to injuries within the squad. It’s fair to say that reports on this front are a bit mixed and at this stage are still lacking in clarity. The bad news first. There are doubts surrounding the participation of […]

Yes, folks, it’s Mayo News football podcast time once again and this edition drills into a number of issues relating to Saturday’s do-or-die Round 2A qualifier clash with Derry. A tactical switch sees me sit this one out but host Rob Murphy […]
The Gaelic football world is, understandably, all agog today at the brouhaha yesterday following Dublin’s evisceration of Westmeath in the kick-about formerly known as the Leinster football championship. Jim Gavin’s post-match outburst was hilarious at several levels – in particular the brazenly hypocritical one, given the filthy personal campaign that Dublin GAA proxies waged against Lee Keegan ahead of the […]
Image: Highland Radio So it’s the Oakleafers for us in Round 2A of the qualifiers the weekend after next. The match will be played at MacHale Park but when and at what time has yet to be confirmed. The GAA are expected to announce fixture details for all the Round 2A matches later on today. UPDATE: Throw-in time of 5pm […]

Photo: @MayoGAA The full-time whistle sounded a bit earlier on at Ballinamore in the Christy Ring promotion/relegation play-off and it’s our lads who came out on top, winning on a scoreline of 1-21 to 1-14. So after a year down in the third tier the hurlers will be back competing for the Christy Ring Cup again in 2017. While today’s game […]
